  • An update on the Stalk Market: I bought Turnips for 97b on Sunday. This morning, T&T are buying them for 63b. I would normally be concerned, but I have this graph to reassure me. I know with some certainty that if I hold my Turnips until Fri…

  • Found this open source project that helps predict turnip prices throughout the week based on the known patterns as you input the prices you see. This can help you know if you're facing a decreasing trend and need to sell early to minimize losses or …

  • Bald Movers, you sunsuvbitches I'm in. SW-8236-8861-1217 I even remembered to change my name from "Dad"
  • I'm pretty sure this was the first movie I watched in theatres, but I have a notoriously poor memory of childhood before about 1985 so I could be wrong. The next year we went to this movie for my birthday party: It was awesome.
  • Try as I might, I've not been able to get Twitch Watch Parties to work outside the US. I'll just have to sync up as best I can.
  • I need to do a little work to see if I can get this working. Apparently the Watch Party feature is only rolled out to US Twitch creators and viewers right now and the stream fails to load through my VPN provider. It's fun to just set it up manually …
  • Premiere was really really good. Guillermo taking  a leading role is inspired. He's rising to the occassion!
  • Murderbear said: Flukes said: I'm now at Chapter 10 in the FFVII remake. I played the demo and it seems pretty rad. Not really a FF fan myself so I probably won't be playing anytime soon but do you think of it? It looks GORGEOUS. …
  • Ran through Doom Eternal - I'll definitely go back and do some trophy hunting. It's just pure adrenaline and it's hard to think about anything else. I'm now at Chapter 10 in the FFVII remake.
  • Tangential question: Has anyone seen this?  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1935156/ Edit: fuck it, I'm watching it. My French is good enough to get the gist of Seydoux, but I wish my Spanish was better. Jodorowsky speaks Spanish about 30% of the t…
  • Giovanni said: I found this of Reddit last week and thought it was funny: https://reddit.app.link/mYxK7O4gI5 Agree 100% with Chamath. The system is rigged for the rich. We created a socalist system for the rich and wealthy, but not the poor.…
  • Remember when some of us wondered where the tension would come from in a prequel?

  • There is an assisted living facility about 5 minutes from my house that is up to 12 deaths. I'm glad my parents are still in their home. 
  • We also cancelled a trip in March and Air Canada gave us a credit valid for only 12 months. It was just my wife and kids going east to visit her side of the family and we originally planned to just postpone until the summer and I would go along too.…
  • I'd be open to trying another platform for some games. I do like TTS though.
  • I liked Children of Dune quite a bit when I first read it. I suspect I'll end up reading all the Frank Herbert titles over the next few weeks.
  • It looks like I may have donated my copy. Debating whether to buy another or wait for libraries to open again. Edit: Resurrected a Kobo and acquired a copy. Looking forward to this evening now!

  • It's been maybe 15 years since I read Dune. Back in my young adulthood, I ready everything Frank wrote and everything his son had written at the time.  Re-reading it with more maturity would be a neat experience. Thanks for the idea! One of the th…
